Kristen Scatliffe

FoundER/creator of mdfeme, inc.

Dr. Kristen Scatliffe is a board certified Internal Medicine physician with subspecialization in Pulmonary and Critical Care medicine. She holds active licenses in NY, NJ, NM, and NC. Originally from the British Virgin Islands, she now calls Houston home. She is an active member of ATS, SCCM and CHEST where she has presented several original publications, posters and abstracts. She is the founder of MDFEME INC. an idea that was birthed from the inequity she saw while practicing in various health systems.  She knew many physicians, like her, who also wanted to see a change but felt powerless to do so. Then the idea of a collective came. A collective that was not asociated with any system but rather based on a common desire for people from all walks of life to be heard, to have access to resources, to truly have an opportunity to be healthy.  It is her hope that this venture helps to give a voice to those who often go unheard within the construct of medicine, due to implicit bias, sterotypes, health iliteracy and cultural incompetence. She is active on social media: @krisdbaby79

Dr. Lubna Chaurey

"As a Family Medicine physician I see patients from the beginning to the end of their lives. I enjoy taking care of the entire family. I am skilled on small procedures that I perform in the clinic setting.  I love being able to help patients set goals to help them reach their optimal health.  I always include my patient’s opinions and consider the challenges they face when I am shaping a plan for their health goals. This ensures that my patient will take ownership over their health and be successful in enacting our care plan. Outside of the office I love to spend time with my family. My passions are traveling and reading."
